Princess Diana’s wedding dress will be on display at an exhibition on Thursday, local time. The British were very interested in her wedding dress to Prince Charles in 1971. The back of the dress was 25 feet long. David and Elizabeth Emanuel, the costume designers, hid the silk dress the night before the show to keep it safe. News AFP.
The exhibition will be held at Kensington Palace under the auspices of ‘Royal Style in the Making’. The exhibition will run until January 2. The exhibition will feature work by Diana, Queen Elizabeth, Princess Margaret and Queen Mother’s costume designers. Princess Diana’s own style will also be discussed there.
The back of Diana’s wedding dress, with rare lace, pearls and thousands of sequins, was the longest of the British princess’s wedding dresses. The director of the exhibition, Matthew Story, told reporters before the inauguration that it was a much bigger costume.
Before Diana’s wedding, the longest veil in the royal family was 20 feet. Diana’s veil was 25 feet. The net below was used to inflate the gown.
In a video, Elizabeth Emanuel said that Diana called her and her husband to make the dress. Emanuel said in a handwritten letter to Diana, he asked her to make a piece of the dress in dark blue. In another video, he said that Diana was very shy at first sight. But later he explained in detail what he really wanted.
Diana loved to break the rules. He often did not wear gloves or hats in defiance of royal protocol.
If she had lived, Diana would have been 60 years old on July 1. A statue of Harry and William Diana is expected to be unveiled in the garden of Kensington Palace.
Her wedding dress was not shown to anyone else before Diana wore it. The wedding gown was in the possession of her brother Earl Spencer after Diana’s death. The gown was featured in many of Diana’s outfits at an exhibition called ‘Diana: A Celebration’ at the Cincinnati Museum Center in Ohio, USA. According to Diana’s wishes, when Prince Harry turned 30 in 2014, Earl Spencer returned the wedding dress to Prince William and Harry. William and Harry donated the wedding dress for the exhibition.
